Continued prayers for Sandy Priddy, Myrtle McIntire, Irene Clark, Carole Fredrikson, and Margie Waddell. (Margie is doing much better) We are thankful, as well, to be able to view worship services.

Encouragement from Dale Herboldt

Church family,

As you know cattle are special animals, they like being part of a herd. It gives them a sense of comfort and security that they don’t have when they are alone. Cattle prefer to do everything together, when one cow stands up and takes off to get a drink of water, the entire herd will follow. If a cow saunters off to graze at the far corner of the pasture, guess what? The entire herd will do the same; no one cow wants to be left behind and no cow wants to be different.

People tend to be like a herd of cows, I call it “running with the herd”. This herd instinct influences what people do and even the clothes they buy. We become very nervous about standing out from the crowd and desire to just blend in like everyone else.

As children of God, we should stand out from the rest of the world because we really are different from this world. Those of the world should be able to quickly see that something is different about us – that we belong to a different world. When that happens, we will have opened the door to blessing others with our faith. Let’s not be like a herd of cows! Be different!

Dale Herboldt

Romans 12: 2 (The Message): “Don’t become so well adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You will be charged from the inside out.”

Sermon: January 17, 2021

Be Still

Part 2:
“We are STILL Blessed”

by Michael Lewis

January 17, 2021

Sometimes we don’t understand what we have until we really focus on it.

When people panic they tend to focus on what they can lose.

Paul used his lock-down time to think about what he thinks about.

Matthew 5:45: “For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.”

Ephesians 1:3

Ephesians 1:4-5

We are RICH!

  1. We are STILL chosen and valued.

    God’s love does NOT depend on who we are; but, it depends on who He is.

    Romans 8:38: “And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow-not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.”

    Ephesians 1:6-7

  2. We are STILL forgiven and free.

    Romans 3:12: “No one is good enough, no not one.”

    Christ Jesus paid for our imperfections and through HIS blood we belong to God.

    Romans 3:23-24: “For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.”

    Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

    God does NOT haunts us with sins He has forgiven.

    Ephesians 1:9-14

  3. We are STILL informed and indwelled.

    It’s the gift of illumination.

    His Word gives us a sense of God plan and His Spirit gives us a sense of how to live His plan out loud.

Don’t miss the joy for what you have for the fear of what you might lose.

Jude 24-25: “Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault. All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.”

Teens Sunday Morning Bible Class: We are going though the study “Love Out Loud” by Doug Fields. I am very excited to share this study with you!

Community Food Drive

Dear church family,

We continue to search for ways to bless others during this unusual time. The pandemic has left many under-employed or without jobs. Millions within our country suffer from “food insecurity.”  One of our church family members feels led to organize a food distribution effort in our community and our shepherds want to support this effort completely.

On Saturday, February 13, at 1pm we will distribute about 200 bags of groceries at the Lakes Middle school parking lot located in a low-income area of our community. Each bag will include a variety of healthy food items that should bless whoever receives them.

What we need first is one of our Herculean efforts to gather food. We only have three Sundays to collect the food items.

Here is a list of some of the food contained in each bag: peanut butter, (medium sized jars), jars of jelly (not glass, if possible), boxes of macaroni & cheese, cans of chili or stew, canned chicken, and tuna (larger size), small jars of mayonnaise, boxes of granola bars (any flavor).

Bring as many of these items as you can this Sunday, or dropped them off at the church building during the week. And thank you in advance for what I know will be a great response.

Blessings,

Michael
